Lakeville Lions Club tackles steep decline in revenue Organization has seen income drop by as much as 80 percent by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Lakeville Lions Club is accustomed to helping those in need during these tough economic times, but now the organization may need the help. The organization lost

a key charitable gambling contract and has seen its monthly revenues drop on average about 75 percent since last spring. “It’s had a tremendous impact on us,” said Lions president John Buehler, who declined to name the party with which the Lions had a contract. “Of course, we try to make as much money as we can.” The organization’s traditional focus internationally

has been eyesight, hearing and diabetes, but the Lakeville club has donated thousands of dollars for scholarships for local students, among other charitable pursuits. Recently the organization donated 36 backpacks full of supplies to Lakeville elementary students. This year the revenue that remains for initiatives comes primarily from the See Lions, 7A

Longtime city engineer retiring in September Keith Nelson finishes up nearly 30 years with Lakeville by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

It was 1988. The Berlin Wall had yet to fall, the Twins had won a World Series the year before (and would win another a few years later) and 185th Street in Lakeville was still a gravel road. It had been a few years since Keith Nelson had served as an engineering consultant for the city, but here he was again. Lakeville was issuing nearly 900 single-family permits a year and needed a full-time city engineer. Gone were the days in the early- to mid-’80s when the city had between 14,000 and 15,000 people, compared with more than 55,000 today. Things were picking up fast, and the

City Council knew whom to turn to. “It started getting crazy,” Nelson said, comparing yesteryear’s flood of housing permits with today’s. “Right now we’re lucky if we get 100.” After about 28 years serving Lakeville, Nelson announced last week he was retiring effective Sept. 30. “I turn 64 on Sept. 27,” he said, “so it’s my birthday present.” Nelson’s retirement is not for a lack of passion for his job. “When the alarm clock goes off in the morning, I still can’t wait to go to work,” he said. “There have been great opportunities here.” Two of his bosses, current City Administrator

watch,” Mielke said. “He has a bank of knowledge you only get with time and age.” Erickson, who is also a member of the Lakeville School Board, lauded Nelson’s leadership when it came to developing the city’s intricate transportation network. He cited work on Highways 50, 60 and 70 and on County Road 46 as evidence of this. “This (school) district benefitted from his good work as an engineer over the last quarter-century,” Erickson said. Mielke said he also respects the good relationships with the development community Nelson cultivated during his tenure with the city. “He works well with de-

velopers,” he said. At least one developer can back that up. Joe Miller, owner of Country Joe Homes, who sold his previous home-building business to D.R. Horton, worked with Nelson on scores of housing projects. “He was a super guy to work with,” Miller said. “He has common sense. He is very level-headed.”

Haugen talks about future of education THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

New Farmington Area Schools Superintendent Jay Haugen predicts “fundamental change� in public education, and intends to begin public dialogue about the possibilities later this year. In the future, Haugen said the “factory model� of moving groups of students through grades together will likely fade away into a new mode, driving “fundamental changes.� “I think we’re going to streamline the way we do school with more independent learning,� he said in an Aug. 22 interview. Haugen also envisions some kind of 24/7 learning capabilities enabled by electronic devices to provide individualized learning experiences for students. Among the possibilities are for schools to be open longer and with more varied school schedules during the day. “There’s not any of these things that I am tied to, or

think it’s the best solution for Farmington, but these are conversations we will have in the future,â€? he said. Haugen is planning to discuss ideas with the School Board, staff and community after this school year starts to discuss options and plans. He added the district may produce a video podcast to provide more information about various school issues on its website. Haugen’s approach is to invite dialogue, as exemplified by the community meetings he set after receiving over a dozen emails from parents regarding concerns over class size. “I want to hear from everyone ‌ and more directly address their concerns,â€? he said. Haugen counts the budget as among Farmington Schools’ biggest challenges, because state funding is expected to be flat for the next four to five years. Despite the state’s finances, he said his vision is for Farmington Schools to continue to improve and to

be well-known for educational excellence. After just a few weeks on the job, Haugen said he feels like he’s “always been here,� and has already made some big changes. At its Aug. 8 meeting, the School Board unanimously approved Haugen’s recommendation to hire MaryAnn Thomas as the district’s new human resources director and Carl Colmark as its new finance director. Both came from West St. Paul-Mendota Heights-Eagan School District, where Haugen was superintendent for five years until beginning his tenure with Farmington July 15. Thomas will earn $129,603 in her first year and Colmark’s initial salary is $140,400. Haugen calls Thomas “just brilliant in her position,� noting her creativity in working through staffing issues and excellent negotiating skills. He said Colmark is a strong problem-solver, good with numbers and projec-

tions and able to think creatively to give educators the things that are needed in the classroom. “I think that’s really important especially in these times,â€? Haugen said. He added that he will lead the district with an eye toward the future, making goals and improving education in the district despite the state’s budget battles. “I want Farmington to be seen as the place to go to school. That people come here and businesses move here ‌ and one of the reasons they do, is that they know they won’t get a better education anywhere else,â€? Haugen said.

U.S. Sen. Al Franken visited Just Kidding Around, a child care center in Lakeville, to meet with children and staff members on Friday, Aug. 19. He toured the facility and learned about Just Kidding Around’s efforts to provide a healthy learning environment. Franken serves on the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, which has the authority to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, also known as No Child Left Behind, later this year. Franken said he has been a longtime advocate of early childhood education.

Opinion ECM Editorial Using tomorrow’s dollars to pay for today’s education The solution to ending the state shutdown last month was accomplished, in part, by delaying payments to school districts. That means the state will pay next year part of the revenue owed to school districts for operation this year. The state will shift the payment to the future, but the bills will still have to be paid now by districts. So if you have the bills but not the revenue, what do you do? You spend what reserves you might have and then borrow. You pay interest on what you borrow and you promise that when the shift is ended you will pay back the loan. This year, school districts will receive 60 percent of their state revenue, and next year they will receive the other 40 percent. Next year, school districts will receive the 40 percent that was delayed; however, they will again only receive 60 percent of

the state revenue they have coming that year, and the other 40 percent will again be delayed. Only when the state comes up with the 40 percent to pay off the debt will the payments be back on schedule. What if the state didn’t delay payments? Well, there are two actions: Raise taxes or cut programs and services. To avoid raising taxes or cutting programs the state borrowed and used school districts as the vehicle to borrow. Some folks argue that costs should have been reduced and programs cut. Frankly, that sounds great unless it’s your child, now in school, who will experience the impact of those cuts. In fact, it’s not just a school issue. There is always the possibility that once the cuts were made we would gladly welcome the taxes, but who wants to sacrifice a year or two of their son’s or

daughter’s education to a public tax reality check? The delay in school payments from the state bought time and not much else. So what are we doing with this valuable time? The fear is that the valuable time will be filled with discourse dominated by generalities, accusations, philosophies, personalities and endless political commercials. Current polls indicate that there is some public support for both cuts and tax increases. Why not use this time to specify the potential cuts and the potential tax increase? Borrowing is now a reality, so before we get back to the “he said-she said� backand-forth, can we ask for a description of the choices we face? Can we ask the decision-makers who closed down the state a few months ago to now stay at the table and

work on solutions? Can we ask for enough sunlight on the process so we can see and hear the reality of the choices and the quality of the discussion? Can we get a shared vision for Minnesota’s students and the beginning of a plan to achieve that vision? Can we tell the parents of Minnesota’s 800,000 students just how their children will be affected next year, and each year thereafter? Can we listen to our parents’ reactions to those proposals before our views are set in stone? We borrowed against our children’s future to save their future. Now we have to make sure that loan and that risk aren’t squandered. An editorial from the ECM Editorial Board. Thisweek Newspapers and the Dakota County Tribune are part of ECM Publishers Inc.

Thisweek Columnists Obama’s visit left an indelible mark on Cannon Falls by Don Heinzman THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A special turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread may be renamed after Barack Obama at the Old Market Deli in Cannon Falls. That sandwich, which was prepared under the watchful eye of the Secret Service, was served to the president at a table-for-six a week ago where he talked with Minnesota Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. The president stopped there following his talk at the Hannah’s Bend Park in Cannon Falls, part of his three-state bus tour last week. The chair in which Obama sat, the middle one facing the window at the deli, will be especially marked, a server said. Business at the deli picked up after the president’s visit. Visitors admired the enlarged photographs taken of the president. According to a story in the Cannon Falls Beacon, security cleared Mill Street and the

sidewalks. The Secret Service also paraded a bomb dog through the restaurant and made the staff go through metal detectors. When the president arrived he shook hands with everyone and posed for photographers. The president’s visit already has made Cannon Falls a tourist attraction. At Econo Foods, many people were buying the Cannon Falls Beacon newspaper, a keepsake with full coverage, including a second section of photographs and stories. Publisher Dick Dalton said he printed 500 extra papers and demand was so great he had to print another thousand. A big white and blue sign welcoming the president was still hanging on the front of the Cannon Falls Winery. Julie Disch of Hi Quality Bakery baked a special tray of cookies decorated with colorful American flags in honor of the visit. At the park where the president spoke,

people on Saturday were looking for the place where the president stood, overlooking the Cannon River, which was patrolled by security guards in a hovercraft. They saw how branches were sawed from the trees so security people had a direct view of the president. During his talk, a helicopter flew above the 500 ticketed people who saw and listened to the president. A string of yellow school buses had formed a ring around the enclosed area to shield the president. School Superintendent Beth Giese is the proud owner of a special stool the president used for his water bottle. It had to be a stool without metal and without a back. She gave him one of her wooden kitchen stools. After the White House had thought about getting a professional to sing the National Anthem, Giese recalled Indy Boeck who has performed in school choirs and musicals. She was selected. She also recommended that fifth-grader Graham Pearson, who is a Cub Scout and

at the top of his class, say the Pledge of Allegiance. Barbara Martin, pastor at the first Congregational Church of Christ, didn’t give an ordinary invocation. She read the one used at the Opening Inaugural Event at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., Jan. 18, 2009. The president’s visit went without a hitch. Administrator Aaron Reeves received an email right away from the White House “telling us what a great job the city did.� Don Heinzman is chairman of the ECM Publishers Inc. Editorial Board. Thisweek Newspapers and the Dakota County Tribune are part of ECM. Heinzman was in Cannon Falls last weekend and learned that the small city will never be the same following President Barack Obama’s visit Monday, Aug. 15. He is at don.heinzman@ecminc.com.

fied to see that two-thirds or more of Americans respect the profession since they would encourage “the brightest person you know� and “a child of yours� to become a public school teacher. While some educators feel a lack of respect, this poll found considerable support for the profession. Minnesota, and Farmington/Lakeville-area families, benefit from this because for some teaching openings, there are literally hundreds of people applying. Unlike some states that have a difficult time attracting teachers, Minnesota actually has a surplus in some teaching areas. In fact, some states come to Minnesota to recruit teachers. Second, that esteem is demonstrated in the willingness of 72 percent of poll respondents to empower educators by “giving teachers flexibility to teach in ways they think best,� rather than require them “to follow a prescribed curriculum.� I hope creative, committed, hard-working teachers find these responses encouraging. Third, just as most poll respondents want teachers to be free to select materials and strategies, 74 percent support allowing families “to choose which public schools in the community the students attend, regardless of where they live.� Seventy percent also favor “the idea of charter public schools.� Poll trends show support growing for public school choice, including charters. Minnesota families benefit from a variety of “Dual Credit� options. These allow hardworking high school students to earn college credit while still in high school. Students

See www.centerforschoolchange.org/highschool-college-enrollment/index.html. Area families also benefit from a number of strong public school options that are available. These include local public schools, “online� public schools, open enrollment into nearby districts, the School for Environmental Studies (Zoo School) in Apple Valley and several magnet schools. There also are several charter public schools available, including Paideia in Apple Valley and Seven Hills Classical Academy in Bloomington. The poll has just over 40 questions, and is available online. It’s at www.pdkintl.org/ poll/index.htm. Yes, there are strong, deep divisions on some issues in this country. But this poll shows there is very strong agreement on a number of key ideas in education. These responses are consistent with empowering educators to decide how they teach. Some educators want more respect, but oppose allowing families to choose among district and charter public schools. Strong majorities of the public support both educator and family public school choice.

Roy Allan Lindell Lindell Roy, Allan age 88 of Apple Valley, went to his eternal rest and Master on Aug. 19, 2011. He is preceded in death by his parents, Gustav and Alfrida Lindell; survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Elaine; children, Robert (Delphina Souza), Charlotte (Rick) Green, Barb (Bob) Behan, Richard (Janice Anderson) and Ralph (Mona Selim) Lindell; 10 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. Allan will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Allan (yes he went by his middle name) was born March 17, 1923 , in St. Paul, MN. He was the only child of Alfrida Charlotta (nee: Berglund) and Bror Gustav Lindell, immigrant Swedes that came to America to escape the terrible famine that gripped Sweden. Allan worked for the railroad for over 30 years, interrupted only by his military service in the U.S. Army during WWII. Early in his career he saw the railroad transitioning from steam locomotives to diesel electric locomotives, so he took the initiative to take home study courses in electronics from DeVry Institute. As his career progressed he moved his family roughly every 6 years, going to St. Paul, MN, westward to Staples, MN, up to East Grand Forks, MN, then southward to Moorhead, MN, then back to Staples, and finally over to Superior, WI, where he retired as the foreman of Locomotives. Allan loved fishing (he even made time for some fishing on his honeymoon), canoeing, camping, family vacations and reunions, bowling, and doing home improvements. He sang in the church choir, was active in Gideon’s Bible Society, but most of all he loved his wife and family. A special thank you to the Centennial House Staff in Apple Valley, the St. Jude Hospice Program and the pastoral care staff at Grace Lutheran Church. Funeral Services will be held 11 AM on Thursday (8/25) at Grace Lutheran Church, 7800 Co. Rd. 42., Apple Valley with visitation on Wednesday from 5-8pm at the White Funeral Home, 14560 Pennock Ave., Apple Valley (952 432 2001) also 1 hr prior to Service at Church. Interment Forest Lawn Cemetery, St. Paul. www.whitefuneralhomes.com

kind of earth-moving, outdoors-oriented work that makes civil engineering quite appealing to those who enjoy it. “We were grading bases with heavy equipment,� Nelson said. “We were moving the earth.� The Army would fly cranes in to clear off mountaintops for bases. It was, in other words, pretty heavyduty work. “That’s when I made up my mind about civil engineering,� he said. Nelson said he also liked the nuanced nature Class Size/from 1A In an email to one parent, Haugen wrote, “I am happy to keep you in the loop concerning this topic.� According to the latest figures, which vary at the start of the school year as students arrive or don’t arrive as expected, most of the district’s elementary classes will number in the mid-tohigh 20s. The largest elementaryage classes are anticipated in the first grades at North Trail and Akin Road, where some of those classes are projected to reach or near

of the field. “It’s not an exact science like electrical engineering,� he said. “There’s a lot of judgment in civil (engineering).� That knack for judgment – that ability to see beyond one’s nose – is a must for a person responsible for the infrastructure of a 38-squaremile city. “In this city I’m more than just an engineer,� he said. “I’m also like a planner. We have comprehensive plans for transportation, sanitary sewer, storm water, water mains. ... You just have to make sure everything fits.� Lakeville is far from being

as built out as some neighboring south metro suburbs. Nelson’s planning projections show at least 100,000 residents by build-out, taking into account green space and other environmental considerations. It could be more if Valley Park becomes a transit-oriented development along the bus rapid transit line on Cedar Avenue, he said. “You always have to look at the big picture,� he said.

the district’s maximum for that grade – 28 students. Second grade at Farmington Elementary is projected to have two classes of 29 students and another with 28 students, also reaching the district’s maximum. That amount of secondgraders in a classroom is “far from reasonable,� wrote FES Parent-TeacherPartnership President Jessie Huebsch in an email to School Board members and Haugen. Huebsch described parents as being “extremely frustrated and upset with the prospective class sizes.�

In response, Haugen said enrollment numbers typically vary at the beginning of the school year, and he cited the district’s funding struggles. Adding a full-time teacher costs about $65,000, Haugen said, and state funding is flat for the foreseeable future. “Trying to solve every issue of high class size by adding staff would guarantee financial crisis and large increases to class size in the future,� he wrote.

Haugen said the district’s enrollment is likely to come in above projections, which would allow consideration of hiring additional staff (because of the additional per-pupil funding that would follow). “Providing this additional support for the classroom only makes sense because it is the strength of our enrollment that causes the additional funding,� he said.

Two confirmed cases of measles in Dakota County are under investigation by the Minnesota Department of Health. Both cases were found in babies who were not vaccinated against measles. The first child, a Dakota County 1-year-old, became sick in early August after a trip to Kenya, where an outbreak of the disease is occurring. A second case was found in a 15-month-old child who came down with the disease after visiting the family of

the first child. Both children were hospitalized, but only the first one remains there and was last reported in critical condition, according to the Minnesota Health Department. “The first baby was diagnosed quite early,� said Claudia Miller, MDH manager for Immunizations, Tuberculosis and International Health. “We don’t know why some babies are more severely ill if there are not other underlying conditions.� Two health care facilities in Dakota County are part of the state’s investigation, and Miller, noting that workers and others who may have been exposed are being tested, but none has shown positive for the disease. Doctors are on alert and testing more patients for exposure to the disease. “Every day our lab is running two or three tests just because everyone has a high index of suspicion for measles right now,� Miller said. People who may have been exposed to the measles, which is highly contagious and can be life-threatening, are notified and offered a vaccine or immune globulin to decrease the chance of coming down with the disease. The MDH is emphasizing the need for immunizations and especially encour-

aged for those traveling to area of the world where disease like measles are more common. However, a resurgence of measles is also occurring in the United Kingdom and Europe, Miller said, warning travelers to beware and address the topic with their doctors before going to those places. Normally the first dose of MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine is given to children at 12-15 months of age, but should be given to children 6-12 months of age who will be traveling internationally. Symptoms of the measles usually appear 8 to 12 days after exposure and begin with a fever. Other symptoms include runny nose, cough, loss of appetite, watery eyes and a rash. The rash usually moves from the hairline to the face and proceeds down the body. It usually lasts five to six days. Vomiting or diarrhea can also accompany these symptoms. Measles is spread through the air by infectious droplets and is typically transmitted from four days before the rash is visible to four days after the rash appears. No treatment is available for measles, but people with it need bed rest, fluids and control of fever. This spring, an outbreak

People can come and get a hands on (education).� The center also serves the youth of the community. “We have more than 500 children in theater camps this summer,� he said. It also serves as a community center in which people can rent space for receptions and galleries. As for the community component, one need not go much further than across the street from it to find a fan. Don Speiker, owner of Lakeville Family Bowl, started taking a pottery class with his wife five years ago as part of a date. He created bowls and mugs adorned with the bowling alley’s logo. Speiker sees his pottery sessions at the center as a therapeutic respite from the rigors of daily life. “You forget about everything else going on,� he said. “You just focus on the wheel.� To purchase tickets for the Gala, call (952) 9854640.

The 10th anniversary season kicks off with the gala, but there are plenty more shows on the bill. For example, there is the ninth annual Lakeville Art Festival in mid-September, “An Afternoon with Mark Twain� in November, “The Nutcracker Suite� in December, “Peter Pan� and an Elvis tribute in February and “The Odd Couple� next August. But what about the future? Can the arts center survive in this tough global economy, amid budget cuts and changing legislative priorities? Erickson and Barnard both think so. “Within the next two years the debt service will be paid off,� Erickson said. “Then this building is paid for. That in itself is cause for celebration.� Barnard said he and his staff will be “very creative in how we use the space. We have so many programs going on here.� He said that it is possible that an expansion could be needed in the next 10 years, Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehbut that is not a certainty. ling@ecm-inc.com and www.

the city would pay off its $38.3 million accumulated debt and develop a budget that anticipates and funds projects without adding debt. To fund it, the plan raises property taxes every year through 2023, except in 2013, 2017, 2019 and 2021. In 2012, the proposed tax increases are greater than in following years. Next year, the city portion of property taxes on the average value homestead property would increase by $80.90 and non-homestead property taxes would rise by $292.90. The 2011 average value property in Farmington in both categories is $199,800. Half of the non-homestead property tax increase is driven by state changes in the way the Market Value Homestead Credit is calculated, a change out of Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s control. In the remaining years of Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed plan, planned increases for the average value homestead property range from $52.80 to $14.40 and

from $62.80 to $17.10 for a non-homestead property. That initial bigger tax hike planned in 2012, said Schorzman, is to catapult the city from a budget that spends more than it takes in to one that collects more than it spends. With the money, the city would establish a fund to pay cash for expensive projects without taking on more debt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I call it front-loading,â&#x20AC;? Schorzman said. If the plan is followed, homestead property taxes in 2023 for the average value property would

be $251.20 more than in 2011. For the average value commercial property, taxes would be $495.20 higher than in 2011. As Farmington City Council members reviewed the debt-reduction plan at an Aug. 22 budget workshop, concerns were raised about the affect tax increases would have on property owners already struggling in a tough economy. Council Members Julie May and Terry Donnelly were opposed to the tax increases, and urged the council to make more budget cuts and/or create

after some belt-tightening and selective giving measures, the losses are much smaller, Buehler said. The financial situation wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect one of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest initiatives, donations of turkeys and fixings to food shelves for Thanksgiving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think that is one of the major things we do,â&#x20AC;? Buehler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lakeville is a pretty prosperous community, but there is some dire need for food on the table.â&#x20AC;?

The 50-year-old club is looking at various ways to replace the lost revenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a committee of people looking at charitable gambling,â&#x20AC;? Buehler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope the ship will turn a little bit.â&#x20AC;? For those looking to help the Lions Club, check out its website at www.lakevillelions.org.

more efficiencies. Some discussion was held about making changes to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s police budget, a department that council members said has not had cuts, unlike other city departments. The council plans to meet with Police Chief Brian Lindquist to review that departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget Sept. 12. May cited concerns about trying to cover for years of debt so quickly, noting that investors are the ones buying properties these days, and tax increases could detract buyers and add to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreclosure rate. Donnelly agreed, calling the plan â&#x20AC;&#x153;unrealisticâ&#x20AC;? and asking for a less expensive plan that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to fix everything in â&#x20AC;&#x153;one shot.â&#x20AC;?

tion job. Priority budget items for 2012 include $350,000 for road seal coating; $15,000 for trail maintenance; $400,000 for street rehabilitation and $150,000 to create an equipment replacement fund. If passed, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s levy increase in 2012 would be $992,566, bringing the total levy to about $9.5 million, according to Schorzman. As required by state law, the council must set the maximum property tax levy increase by Sept. 15, an amount that can be reduced but cannot be increased. A final budget will be adopted in December.

Christy Jo Fogarty said the plan is a measured approach and it needs to be done to address the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the problem. Nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had the political will to do the hard, crappy things,â&#x20AC;? she said. Council Member Jason Bartholomay said constituents he spoke to at the National Night Out didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the tax increases, but approved of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan after listening to him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my goodness, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually planning,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that if something isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done, the situation will only get worse.

Three house fires hit Lakeville in past week Three cats survive a close call with flames by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Last week was an active one in the world of Lakeville firefighting. On Monday, Aug. 22, a fire rendered a home uninhabitable. On Thursday, Aug. 18, two houses in different neighborhoods suffered fires that caused significant damage. No one was seriously hurt in any of the incidents. The Aug. 22 fire at 17526 Haverhill Circle happened at about 2 p.m. A discarded cigarette caused a front porch fire that was poised to spread throughout the house, according to reports from the city. Police endured heavy smoke on the rear deck in order to remove the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single occupant to safety. Arriving fire crews determined the blaze was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sec-

ond alarmâ&#x20AC;? fire, which led to all four fire stations being dispatched to the scene. Crews were able to keep the fire isolated in one area. Fire Marshal Brian Carstensen said in the report that two front windows were broken as a result of the heat and that the fire had been progressing beyond the deck when crews arrived. The gas meter on the house melted and the interior suffered a great deal of smoke damage. In addition to the police and fire departments, Allina Ambulance also responded. The Aug. 18 fire occurred at about noon at 18276 Ixonia Ave, according to a report from the city. A neighbor reported seeing smoke and flames in the attic and the rear of that house. After reporting the fire, the neighbor

made sure the ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dogs were safely out of harmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. The house was fully engulfed in flames by 12:14 p.m., according to the city, by which point the roof collapsed. Crews were on the scene almost nine hours, but the house ended up being a total loss. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. Fire trucks from three Lakeville stations initially responded. By the time the fire was extinguished, nine Lakeville trucks and one Apple Valley truck were at the scene. While crews were responding to the fire on Ixonia Avenue, another call came in for a house fire at 17855 Layton Path at about 6:18 p.m. The owner was home and had evacuated after smelling

All four Lakeville stations responded to this call with a total of 11 trucks and were present until 8 p.m. When firefighters arrived, they saw heavy smoke in the lower-level fitness area of the house. They were able to contain the fire to two

rooms, both of which ended up receiving extensive smoke and heat damage. Three cats survived a close call with the fire, but suffered from smoke inhalation. The firefighters and medics gave oxygen to the cats and were able to revive them. Despite the containment

of the fire, the home is uninhabitable because smoke and heat managed to damage other parts of the house. The cause of this fire is under investigation. Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.

Hastings council member to run for County Board Hastings City Council Member Mike Slavik said on Tuesday that he will seek election to the Dakota County Board seat that is being vacated by longtime District 1 Commissioner Joe Harris. Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; seat will be on the 2012 ballot along with those of fellow commissioners Tom Egan (portion of Eagan and area to the north), Will

Branning (Apple ValleyRosemount), and Liz Workman (Burnsville). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joe has been a dedicated public servant who has served the district well,â&#x20AC;? Slavik said in a press release of the board member since 1981. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am running because the county will face a new generation of challenges and I represent a unique mix of private and

public sector skills that can meet those challenges.â&#x20AC;? District 1 includes Farmington, Mike Slavik Hastings and the townships of Eureka, Empire, Castle Rock and others in southeast Dakota County. Slavik, a Hastings native, is serving his second term on the Hastings City Council as

an at-large member. He also serves on the Dakota County Communications Center Board and the Highway 61 Bridge Visual Quality Team. While on the council, Slavik has chaired the parks and recreation, operations and public safety committees and serves on the finance and planning committees. He describes himself as a moderate with a record of bringing different views together to accomplish initiatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most important and rewarding part of my job as an elected official is to listen to citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns and work with them to find reso-

lution,â&#x20AC;? he said. Slavik stresses the balance county government must have between preserving a high quality of life and services while addressing budget pressures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to start with innovative thinking and bold vision,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can all be proud of the fact that Dakota County is a well run county, but we face aging populations and infrastructure, constant technology advances, and reduced state funding. These challenges present untapped opportunities to be truly inventive in how local government functions.â&#x20AC;? Slavik is a graduate of St.

Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University in Collegeville, with a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in political science. He works as a Realtor at Keystone Real Estate in Hastings. He is part owner and president of Hometown Laundry LLC, a laundromat and real estate holdings company. He serves on the Hastings Area YMCA board of directors, the Hastings High School Alumni Board and his church council. State Rep. Patrick Garofalo, R-Farmington, said in early August he is considering running for Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; open seat, but that he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a decision until early 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tad Johnson

Sports Panthers transform from young to experienced Lakeville North hopes to build off surprising 2010 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Predicting how a season will progress after just a few practices is difficult, but Lakeville North head football coach Brian Vossen feels good about the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prospects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look better at this point of the season than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve looked the past four years, no question,â&#x20AC;? Vossen said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high praise for a team that went to state about 20 months ago, but it returns many starters from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 seed in Section 1-5A. The Panthers had one of the youngest teams in the conference last season starting four sophomores and eight juniors, but they went 7-3 with two losses against Rosemount and Lakeville South â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also state tournament qualifiers. This year, the buzz surrounding the Panthers is as loud as ever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have chills for this

Lakeville North has high expectations for both its offense and defense with several experienced players returning. To see more practice pictures, visit www.Thisweeklive.com. year,â&#x20AC;? senior lineman AJ Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to compare to this year. I think our guys are working really hard. Obviously senior year brings more excitement for the seniors. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mobile and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty strong and none of

us quit.â&#x20AC;? Offensive linemen Miller and Mike Manikowski are back on the line hoping to give returning quarterback Trey Heid room to run and throw. Vossen praised Heidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progression during the past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw him today on a

scramble and you blink and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 45 yards down field and no one touched him,â&#x20AC;? Vossen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teams are going to have to respect his run game. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to seeing teams try to defend against him. I practice against him every day and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figured it out yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His arm is better. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

a little more accurate. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spreading the ball to a lot of receivers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exciting time.â&#x20AC;? Heid will have familiar targets at the wide receiver position â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Charlie Hayes and Joel Oxton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and tight end â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ben Blake. From the running back position, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a four-back race. Isaac Sandberg has the most miles as the secondleading rusher last season. Dan Keiran, Kevin Estry and Nick Valenti all bring different dimensions to the running game. The defense has seven players with several games of varsity experience. The linebacking crew of Mitch Johnson, Austin Streit and Alex Wood have returned along with defensive linemen Luke Goeman and Karl Finkle, who had seven sacks as a sophomore. Mike Koloski is moving from corner to safety. He joins Zach Creighton in the secondary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mainly coach the defense so I may be a little arrogant here, but last year we finished second in points allowed in the conference,â&#x20AC;? Vossen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, we

want to be first and I think we will be.â&#x20AC;? Competition in the South Suburban Conference is expected to be as tough as ever. The Panthers will play several preseason favorites such as Eastview (Sept. 1), Rosemount (Sept. 23) and Lakeville South (Oct. 7). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have every opportunity to be one of those teams fighting for that top spot,â&#x20AC;? Vossen said. But with winning thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a certain amount of luck. In 2010, North had lastsecond wins against Prior Lake, Eastview and Kennedy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hope that kind of luck continues, but on the same end you want to make your own luck,â&#x20AC;? Vossen said. The season opener is scheduled Thursday at home against Eastview. Last season, Lakeville North defeated Eastview 3-0 in overtime in the opener. The Panthers will host Edina on Sept. 16, Burnsville on Sept. 30, and Lakeville South on Oct. 7. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Cougars aim for late November run Several skilled players return from a team that qualified for state in 2010 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

With six starters back on defense and five on offense, Lakeville South football has expectations as high as the Metrodome roof. The Cougars qualified for the Class 5A state tournament last season and they believe they can return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can tell when we have good players and we have good players,â&#x20AC;? head coach Larry Thompson said. Thompson has led football teams to state titles and several state tournaments, so he would know. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know we want to

go to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dome,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? wide receiver Devon Bzoskie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just missed out on going there last year.â&#x20AC;? The Class 5A semifinals and finals are played at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Last season, Lakeville South lost to Rosemount in the quarterfinals. The players are aware that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy considering what awaits. Thompson listed Eastview (Sept. 9), Rosemount (Sept. 30), Lakeville North (Oct. 7), Eagan (Sept. 2) and Prior Lake (Oct. 14) as teams that could get in their way of a South Subur-

ban Conference title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of tough competition to play, but things about this team are special,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a really good quarterback and speed and skill. Our (offensive) line is way better than we thought. On defense weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving a lot faster and a lot quicker than we thought we were going to be.â&#x20AC;? The team still has a few roster openings, but after a few rounds of practice, Thompson is encouraged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve have some really good surprises on defense,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Photo by Rick Orndorf

The Lakeville South passing attack is expected to be one of the most potent in the metro with Mitch Leidner at quarterback throwing to Devon Bzoskie and Matt Heller. For more photos, visit www.Thisweeklive.com. better than we hoped.â&#x20AC;? The skill positions are as strong as any in the metro with Mitch Leidner under center at quarterback. The University of Minnesota recruit has two of his favorite targets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bzoskie and Matt Heller â&#x20AC;&#x201C; back at receiver. Leidner also has targets Trent Bertamus, who is playing both receiver and cornerback, and newcomer Ty Powell, who could handle several punt and kick returns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re faster than last

               

year,â&#x20AC;? Bzoskie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a lot farther along at this point.â&#x20AC;? Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team relied on its running game to earn the wins. The Cougars will need to replace nearly 1,300 yards and 16 touchdowns from alumni DJ Hiller and Casey Troop. Chris Moore and Austin Britnell aim to fill the gap with Braden Kaufenberg at fullback. Returning offensive linemen are Chris Sperl, Connor Stoffregen, Tommy

Ryan, Matt Leidner, Kory Lundeen and Scott Newby. On defensive line, all conference member Brandon Meek will join up with converted tight end Dylan Lampert and Tommy Petersen, one of the top wrestlers in the state. Eric Heintze leads an experienced linebacking crew along with Nevin Andreas. Nick Sanborn, Bertamus and Matt Mehlhorn will be the last line of defense in the secondary. One of the more promising signs for Thompson is the fact that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confident in special teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have guys, maybe a few starters, but most of them arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t starters, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good football players,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes (special teams) can hurt you. We have good depth and I like it.â&#x20AC;? One way to make this season a success for South is to find a way to handle the pressure of high expectations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a head coach thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole lot more pressure, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we do this,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not so good and you get something special out of the guys. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more pressure now. Hopefully we can diffuse that. Hopefully we can relax and have some fun.â&#x20AC;? The season opener for South is scheduled for Friday with Eagan coming to town. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Tigers have higher expectations for 2011 Farmington football team returns several starters on defense and in the passing game

Hoffman and Denver Robinson. They should solidify the front for linebackers Drew Hegseth and Ryan Schoening and the secondaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blake Weinand and Alex Chadwick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We go against them in practice and we have a hard time,â&#x20AC;? wide receiver Nathan Graham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking really good.â&#x20AC;? On offense, top quarterback Darren Beenken has returned along with two of his favorite receivers Austin Bassett and Graham along with Mackinley Bassett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Beenken) really improved a lot over the season,â&#x20AC;? Froehling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He looks better now than even when he finished the season. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s matured. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executing the offense well.â&#x20AC;? Beenken is entering his second year as a starter after taking on the role as a

Winning isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t everything in high school sports, but it sure does make things more fun. Last season, the Tigers went 1-8, with the only win against Red Wing. It was a tough stretch for a team that went 33-7 from 2005-2008, but last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team started several sophomores and juniors. The 2011 version features several juniors and seniors with varsity experience on defense along with their top quarterback and wide receivers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ahead of schedule compared to last year with the things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to put in and the things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do,â&#x20AC;? head coach Mark Froehling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have more experience on defense. That should certainly help us with the beginning of the season.â&#x20AC;? The defense figures to be more aggressive thanks to a lineup filled with returning starters at nearly every position. The defensive line is set with Kevin Olund, Andy VanBlarcom, Bret

sophomore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always had the ability physically,â&#x20AC;? Graham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progressed a lot reading defenses. We have a lot of speed at receiver. I think it will be pretty exciting to see how the spread works after another year in the system.â&#x20AC;? The Tigers will look to Athen Ashton at the tailback position. Josh Boatwright and David Silber are promising newcomers to the offensive line where no starters return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a group of kids practicing well there,â&#x20AC;? Froehling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a good job of being interchangeable. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a work in progress, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long-term project.â&#x20AC;? Although the Tigers appear to have the most expe-

rience in the passing game, Froehling predicts a more balanced approach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to prepare to attack what the defense gives us,â&#x20AC;? Froehling said. Last season, the team switched its offensive scheme from a power offense to a more spread, prostyle offense. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an immediate success, but by the end of the season it was showing signs of promise. There wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as many players on both offense and defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, we played both ways,â&#x20AC;? Graham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would have offense practice then defense practice. Now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just either offense or defense.â&#x20AC;? The Tigers will open the season Sept. 2 with a trip to
